could get something done on immigration, that would be awesome. if we could lift the sequester and put forth a budget that could get people back to work, that would be good. i'm not cynical -- >> i'm not cynical either, in this universe in which we live, you and some of your colleagues have an idea for something the president could actually do by himself to increase wages for working people. what is that? >> well, you know, there are about 2 million workers who work for federal contractors. these contractors pay people sub standard wage, $7.45, no benefits, people have been on these jobs for literally years, and an executive order could solve this problem, and so we wrote a letter to the president about two months ago asking him to do something about it. and i gave another letter today. and you know, i think he is not sincere. he gave a wonderful speech about income inequality today. and he urged congress to raise the minimum wage, but in this congress i think we're going to have to look at what the executive can do and doing something with these contractors who pay people sub standard

and other things could happen that would be problematic and undermine the law. >> immigration reform is not a lot of cause. there was evidence today that you may be right about that. >> with this congress, i never think that anything is going to get done in a wholesale way. we know speaker boehner said this was not going to pass in a comprehensive fashion and go to a joint conference, however speaker boehner hired someone who is well-known within the immigration policy field. she was the head of the immigration policy at the bipartisan policy center. one of john mccain's top aides. if he was serious about crafting real immigration reform legislation while she is a good hire who can help you do. >> was it the lighting of the christmas tree? >> it's the christmas tree. who will be against that. >> thanks very much. and if are more from do men coe, check out first read on nbc news.com. angie is at the live desk with good news just in. i want to hear that. what's happening? >> this just in. grand acts of kindness after a local salvation army was robbed. a spoebs person with the national
for the nearly 6,000 syrians with approved immigrant petitions to the united states. as hundreds of millions around the world prepare to celebrate the most joyful day of the christian calendar, the international community must intensify its efforts to end this terrible war and also to protect syria's christians and to ensure the continued vitality of this 2,000-year-old community. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. speaker, the innovativeness of american enterprise flies off the radar. according to amazon c.e.o., the company is fixing to deliver packages to its customers via drones. it's called amazon prime air. that's right. in just a few years, he says people will be able to order something online and have it in their hands within 30 minutes by the use of drones. sounds like something out of the "jetsons" doesn't it? soon there will be a drone to replace the mail carrier. according to amazon, these packages will deliver up to five pounds. mr. speaker, thousands of americans use amaz
positive. immigration. it is a positive moment for you -- i think. it is a positive moment for you. >> that is a pretty short list. >> this was really positive. you talk about being positive on something like immigration reform. i am not saying that pathway to citizenship or pathway to legalization, but you just talked about the need for our party to be compassionate. we needed to be compassionate and you got absolutely killed for saying that. i will even go a step further. mitt romney decided that he needed to lurch his four-one extremist and it ended up killing us. how do we win that hardware, not only at the governor's mansion but also in debate like that? how do we as a party do more of a positive message? >> i think you are right, joe and mary will agree with this as well. historically, republicans have talked with their mind. we like to dump all the statistics out there. we are the number one state for job creation or the number one this for that. we pitch all of these cold and sterile facts out. what maybe a better way to message this is that being the number one job creatin
engaged in the agenda. >> three things the president wanted to see, immigration reform, a farm bill, and a budget. about to leave. any sort of timetable on those. is there any way to get those. or is it an ongoing process. talked about budget negotiations that are under way. and when it comes to the farm effort the -- and the to pass comprehensive the ration reform, president believes the congress should act and can act as soon as possible and can act right away, the house could, when it comes to these issues. bill. farm >> it couldn't -- >> that's a shame if that's the case. they're not gone yet. they ought to do something etween now and their departure that could signal to the the casepeople that in of a farm bill that we have all the necessary elements of that important legislation taken care tural behalf of our agricul sector as well as on behalf of americans who depend on food and nutrition assistance. and when it comes to comprehensive immigration reform. conservatives have said in the past that there are many things about comprehensive immigration reform that conservatives
a longer budget, even if a tiny budge so they can get back to talking about immigration. immigration advocates want a budget deal so maybe they can move on from talking about immigration reform or talking about the farm bill, which is hugely important. we haven't really heard a lot about it. >> to your point, an interesting number, in paul ryan's original budget which everyone decried as incredibly conservative budget, the expected spending in 2014 was 1.09 trillion. we will end up with about $1 trillion if wets a deal, less than the original paul ryan budget. the debate has clearly been shifted. paul ryan had different assets delivering more to defense, nondiscretionary but clearly in a place where what we value as increased spending is relative to where we were incredibly low. >> robert, the president has been on a messaging campaign about fairness. his i thought great to osawatomie. >> potato potato. >> also an extension of the knox college speech in 2007. >> these are the themes, i think, of his presidency. also going into the second half of the second term and they couldn't come
2014 budget, the farm ill, and immigration reform. reaching across the aisle has become more and more difficult, and this seems like a mountain too tall to climb. this morning, i have the honor of introducing two national leaders who can hopefully help shed some light on how our legislative colleagues in washington, d.c. and the white house might be able to come together and find solutions to our nation's critical problems. let me begin with governor huntsman. he began his public service as a staff assistant to ronald eagan. he has since served four u.s. presidents in critical roles, including u.s. ambassador to singapore, deputy assistant secretary of commerce for asia, u.s. trade ambassador and most recently, u.s. ambassador to china. twice elected as utah's governor, he brought about strong economic reforms, tripled the state's rainy day fund, and helped bring unemployment rates to historic lows. in his tenure, utah was named the best state in america and the best state in which to do business. he serves as co-chair of no labels with u.s. senator joe masden. it's working to bring a
't like he rewrites the lay. it's not just in healthcare issue, it's in regard to immigration, epa regulations. martha: the extension of the employer mandate and moving the money that was suppose to be use forward prevention over to the creation of exchanges. and the critics believe that neither one of those things was in the law. when you look at article two, section three, it says the president shall take care the laws be faithfully executed. that's his job to carry out the law passed by congress. i'm sure that the president who was a constitutional professor himself would say he is well within the law and others might point to previous executive orders and say presidents do this all the time. >> i think our constitutional law professor president needs a refresher kearse on the separation of powers in our united states constitution. clearly it is the congress that's dell gate that authority. the phrase you just referred to to faithfully execute the laws. presidents do have authority to exercise discretion. but when you rewrite a law to say we are going to take it vast majority of

and the president has not seen his uncle in 20 years. as for omar obama, an immigration judge said he could stay in the country because he qualified for permanent residency. >>> the man once call called america's top cop back in the big apple. new york mayor elect bill deblass yo announced bill bratton as new yorks's police commissioner. he ran the police force 20 years ago and he vowed to repair the relationship between officers and minority neighborhoods amid the nypd's controversial stop and frisk program, a tactic he has embraced in the pass while the incoming mayor has criticized it, bratton said a book he read when he was 9 will guide him on his new beat. >> i checked this thing out so often that i don't think anybody else in boston ever saw it. it is a book about the new york city police department of 1956 and i loved the title "your police." in this city, i want every new yorker to talk about their police, my police, with respect and with confidence that they are going to be respected. >> bratton has led the boston and los angeles police departments. >>> pope francis bringing another big
spent time with his uncle who's had some immigration problems. they said before that he had never met with them. it turned out that when he first went to harvard law school he stayed at his home for a couple of weeks. they said, well, why did you tell us before that he hadn't and now you tell us he has? the answer was, well, we didn't ask him before. it's an odd way to get information. >> you have been in that anchor seat for a decade, chris. congratulations. your anniversary is coming up. >> thank you. it's been the dream job of my career. look at that. that's depressing. ronald regan used to say seeing himself in old movies was like seeing a son he never knew he had. >> chris, i have to say something to you, a compliment. look at the head of hair you have, then and now. you've got a good head of hair, mister. >> the only thing out of date there is the suit. >> thank you. it's all mine. i appreciate that, khanna. >> on chris wallace's show, they'll be remembering ten years. who else is coming up? >> we'll be talking to rand paul not only about obama care but on wednesday he went to d
the cooperation between the two areas and you are going to need immigration sooner or later if you want your economy to continue growing and that immigration will come naturally from latin america. that even has a political dividend here so there is a tremendous opportunity for the u.s. in latin america. of course china is very interested in latin america's energy resources, and our water, in our biodiversity and if they want to invest latin america will welcome it. >> thank you. we are almost out of time but for asking one more question couple of housekeeping matters to take care of. first of all i would like to remind you of our upcoming speakers. on december 10 we have the honorable mayor of houston texas. on december 16th 16th dan nickerson chairman and ceo of general motors and on december 19, ricky skaggs grammy award-winning and bluegrass legend. second i would like to present our guest with the traditional national press club coffee mug full fleet to be filled with colombian coffee. [applause] and for the final question you mentioned the good prospects of colombia's national team. th
. things like immigration reform, for example. maybe some farm policy successes that she can then say we started the building blocks toward this. whether it's iran, for example. so, you know, and then he sort of said, okay, give us a year and then i'll be able to tell you a little bit more, but let the president finish his work first. >> my own sense is she will run. she would still like to be president of the united states. the first woman president of the united states if her health is good. she had a blood clot in her brain not that long ago. if her health is good, she's got the strength and the stamina, paul, i believe she will run. >> i saw her last week, and i've never seen her look better. really, she looks terrific. been working out. i'm not worried about her health. i'm just, i am, if i can say in spanish, she will run. we hope and pray. >> we hope she runs. >> i hope and pray. >> here's the former president, gloria, listen to this, ryhan, listen to this as well. this is the former president, another exchange with juan carlos. this time on joe biden. >> what kind of president do
. if they worked a shorter schedule but got productive things passed like a farm bill, like immigration reform, like an increase in minimum wage i think that wouldn't be an issue how many days they are in. it's the fact they don't seem to be working and producing anything. i have great respect for senator hutchison, did a great job in the senate and is just the type of person we need back in the senate but i don't think it's a tough call on minimum wage. we can't let a single mom with two kids continue to earn the minimum wage when it hasn't, as you said, been adjusted for inflation since 1991. the chamber always says it's going to cost jobs but that's never the case. i raised the minimum wage in pennsylvania and we had three of the best job growth years after that that we've had in decades in pennsylvania. when president clinton raised the minimum wage, same cry but it didn't happen. i agree with senator hutchison, do a separate carveout for students paid at a lower wage as opposed to adults trying to protect themselves and their families, that makes sense. that's reasonable. there ought to b
the flat tax idea, makes a lot of sense, he didn't mention here that he is going to allow immigrants to come in. i better be careful here. >> no, relax. >> keep going, bob. >> it's going so well before. >> stand down, bob beckle. >> by the way, i want to congratulate you on getting this on your show. i was on your show last week. you got the top rated show -- >> the number one show in all -- >> so we'll see how i do against paul. >> beckle can light a fire in a crowded room and make things happen. his plan is not only economic, it's also education, it's also regulation. it's socioeconomics. >> i love that he goes, he talks about it. on the epa stuff, i would just say from a messaging standpoint, very careful, if you say you're going to reduce epa. moms here, dirty air, dirty water, kids aren't protected. so careful with that. i think kentucky's got a lot of problems, probably could use his attention right now. i think he's setting himself up for possibly bigger office in the future. and that this is something that is bold and courageous. >> and exactly right, dana's right -- >> it's
sooner than planned. he will come out of arrival toll at some point. he's got to go through immigration and get his bags. it could be a few minutes before we see him. just before he took off from beijing, we saw him in good condition. he was smiling. and he looked in good shape. this is what he had to say. >> i'm very glad to be on my way home. i appreciate the tolerance the dprk government has given to me to be on my way. >> i got to say for a 95-year-old guy he is doing incredibly well considering what he's been through. we understand that his son jeff is expected to be there to greet him at san francisco and then take him to his home in palo alto here in california. his wife also we ready to greet him. jeff saying earlier on it had been a very difficult time for his family and particularly him given his age p. he had a heart condition. while the release came about, one week after we saw him on the video confessing to hostile acts against the regime, the koreans rang up the obama administration without explanation saying, hey, we're releasing him and lo and behold he found himself in
and on the other hand, senate has passed some bills like immigration reform that have crawled to a halt in the house. now congress has passed some major legislation. things like the violence against women act. overall, what is going on here is divided government with sharply divided politics. it means all of these folks up here have one major accomplishment they share. this is the least productive congress in modern history. back to you. >> all right, lisa dejourdan. thank you. >>> coming up, the focus of our debate for you with the political panel. can lawmakers stop playing the blame game long enough to get a little bit of work done? panelists will break it down. >> and our fourth question, what about the markets this week? and the economy. well, there is plenty to look out for. zane asher is at the new york stock exchange. zane? >> deb, this upcoming week on wall street, we will introduce a brand new airline. well, kind of. american and u.s. air will merge into the biggest airline monday. ceos of the two companies will bring the nasdaq's opening bill. ticket will be aal. new name, am
to immigration, to other things that individual musicians care about. >> right. it's certainly not one that mobilized so many people to make such a political change, but i do want to switch gears for a little bit because i would be remiss if i didn't mention the fact that john lennon today, 33 years, people gathered around strawberry field right outside the home of where he was killed. just take a little bit of a listen for a second. ♪ good day sunshine ♪ good day sunshine >> john lennon really pushed for love and peace and very much in the mind and spirit of nelson mandela,as well. one what did the world lose when john lennon was shot? his music continues and even younger generations are catching on, basically. >> what do you think? >> there were a lot of great possibilities if john lennon had stayed alive. we missed whatever he would have been doing for the last 33 years. also, there's a good chance that the beatles would have gotten back together if he'd lived. >> wow! that would have been incredible. anthony decurtis, thank you so much. i could sit here and talk to you for hour
disregarded the mandates and changed key provisions without approval and failed to enforce immigration and drug laws. it is apparent, he says, that the president's vested interest is in the interest of his own agenda. you can expect democrats to take up for the president. >> who are the witnesses on this? >> familiar faces from cable news. johnat johnathan long and looking at the extent or range of executive power in the american political system. >> those cable pun people are good for something. >> the obama administration is laying out some environmental policies. among all of the new epa regulations, what are the critics fearful of? >> they would regulate much of the water in the united states but it would go beyond regulation on private property. something congressional critics say threaten private property rights. >> they want to control the private use of water on private property. they have done so without letting their science board weigh in. >> this isn't the first time that congress has raised question about the science hiepd behind the vigor. epa has ignored congress's reque
're going to need strong application of anti-discrimination laws. we're going to need immigration reform that grows the economy and takes people out of the shadows. we're going to need target initiatives to close those gaps. [ applause ] but here's an opportunity point. the decades-long shifts in the economy have hurt all groups. poor and middle class, inner city and rural folks, men and women, and americans of all races. and americans of all races. and as a consequence, some of the social patterns that contribute to declining mobility that were once attributed to the urban poor -- you know, that's a particular problem for the inner city. single-parent households or drug abuse. it turns out now we're seeing that pop up everywhere. a new study shows that disparities in education, mental health, obesity, absent fathers, isolation from church, isolation from community groups, these gaps are now as much about growing up rich or poor as they are anything else. the gap in test scores between poor kids and wealthy kids is now nearly twice what it is between white kids and black kids. kids with
is comfortable with this idea that he has relatives that had trouble with dui or immigration problems or whatever else, but there's so many politicians that have had similar relatives with similar issues. >> reporter: a white house official pushed back on the idea that he wasn't comfortable with those members of his family, pointing out that he wrote extensively about them in his book "dreams from my father." >>> first the white house said that the president didn't know his uncle, now we learn that mr. obama not only knew him but he lived with him. the question is, is this a big deal? we're talking about it right now to break it down a historian at princeton and david gergen who joins us from atlanta, he is a cnn senior political analyst and a former white house adviser to four presidents. gentlemen, thank you for being here. david, let's start with you. you know what it's like to work at a white house and deal with media questions especially on sensitive issues, how, however, does a white house put out false information like it did on the president's relationship to an uncle? >> well, let me say
of the last six elections. questions about insensitivity to women parallel the same issues like immigration. they feel no incentive to get things done because so few of them are in the district with large hispanic population, but the party overall recognizes that it wants to get this off the table for 2016. the issues with rem women are exactly the same. having said that, mitt romney beat barack obama by 14 points among white women. so democrats are not immune to challenges in that part of the electorate especially as the economy has struggled. ron brownstein, appreciate it. >> a heartfelt good-bye to actor paul walker. fans are gathering to honor him. we'll take you to his special tribute. my name is mike and i quit smoking. chantix... it's a non-nicotine pill. i didn't want nicotine to give up nicotine. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. [ mike ] when i was taking the chantix, it reduced the urge to smoke.

for the holiday break and could leave many big items on the table such as the budget, immigration reform and whether or not to extend unemployment benefits as well as the farm bill. house speaker john boehner knows they are running out of time. >> i'm not seeing progress on the farm bill. if we've gotta pass, a one- month extension of the farm bill, i think we are prepared to do that. >> well, points of contention in passing a new five-year farm bill include cuts to the food stamp program. the house passed a bill to cut $4 billion from the program. the senate proposes $400 million. the other problem, restructuring the farm subsidies where critics argue we're paying farmers not to farm. there are supposed to be some meetings next week but at this point, it's likely they will instead of reaching a compromise, they will perhaps propose an extense of the bill. reporting live in the newsroom, pam cook, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right. thank you. >>> 8:49. let's go to sal, keeping an eye on traffic and a new crash on the peninsula this morning. >> that's right. northbound 101 in south san fr
minorities, immigrants, people that are special ed, special needs, and yet and still they're among top performers in the world. we have to understand that the adults created this system. this is not about kids that get the trophies, this is about adults that are uncomfortable going home with a child that doesn't have a trophy, this is about the adult that doesn't want to sit home and help his or her child do a homework assignment that might take up too much of their night. we have to own that we the adults have to put our children first and create situations in which we push not just the children but the educators that sur ound them. too many of us are comfortable with mediocrity. as michelle said, the rest of the world is moving forward. we haven't dropped, we're just losing in a race because we're not moving forward. >> frank talk from steve perry and michelle reed on this important issue. >>> we have much more ahead in the cnn newsroom and it all starts right now.
